A painter, sculptor, designer and lecturer, the “Godfather of Pop Art” enjoyed a career that spanned five decades, throughout which, he defied aesthetic convention, broke rules and consistently pushed boundaries across his many disciplines.
This retrospective will see over 250 works displayed across four chronological sections. From post-war bronzes and early concrete sculptures such as “Seagull and Fish” and “Blue Fishermen” to the mythology inspired “Diana as an Engine” and the large-scale “Whitworth Tapestry”.
Lesser known works and rarely exhibited drawings by the Scottish-born artist will also be included in the Whitechapel exhibition, as will material from his groundbreaking performance lecture “Bunk!”
